Pressure must remain on President Obama and Congress to reject the Keystone XL pipeline

Danger remains that Obama's veto might be rendered null by further legislative action in Congress, say Greens

Investments in long-term fossil-fuel extraction projects indicate that Big Oil believes it can block effective action against climate change for decades to come, whether Democrats or Republicans hold power

Keynote Address to the annual meeting of the Maine Green Independent Party. June 14, 2014. Portland, Maine by John Rensenbrink. It is said quite often now that our future is in doubt. Meaning the future of us--us human beings on this planet. Can action by human beings prevent these dire ...

The Green Party of the United States is remembering former South African President Nelson Mandela as an inspiration in the struggle for global justice, liberation, and peace.

Greens expressed their sympathy for President Mandela's family and the people of South Africa and paid homage to his fight against apartheid and economic oppression, the courage that sustained him through 27 years of imprisonment, and his "Rainbow Nation" legacy.

from the Green Party Platform ...

3. Indigenous Peoples

We have great respect for Native American cultures, especially their deference for community and the Earth.

We recognize both the sovereignty of Native American tribal governments and the Federal Government's trust obligation to Native American people. Native American nations are just that - nations - and should be treated in like fashion, with the special circumstance that they are located within the United States.

The federal government is obligated to deal in good faith with Native Americans; honor its treaty obligations; adequately fund programs for the betterment of tribal governments and their people; affirm the religious rights of Native Americans in ceremonies (American Indian Religious Freedom Act); provide funds for innovative economic development initiatives, education and public health programs; and respect land, water and mineral rights within the borders of reservations and traditional lands.

We support efforts to broadly reform the Bureau of Indian Affairs to make this vast agency more responsible and more responsive to tribal governments.

We support the just settlement of the claims of the thousands of Native American uranium miners who have suffered and died from radiation exposure. We condemn the stance of secrecy taken by the Atomic Energy Commission during this era and its subsequent claim of government immunity, taken knowingly and immorally at the expense of Native people. We support the complete clean-up of those mines and tailing piles, which are a profoundly destructive legacy of the Cold War.

Native American land and treaty rights often stand as the front line against government and multinational corporate attempts to plunder energy, mineral, timber, fish, and game resources; pollute water, air, and land in the service of the military; expand economically; and consume natural resources. We support legal, political, and grassroots efforts by, and on behalf of, Native Americans to protect their traditions, rights, livelihoods, and sacred spaces.

The Green Party supports the rights of indigenous peoples to their lands, their ways of life, and all other rights of free peoples. We support the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted by the UN General Assembly on September 13, 2007, and call for its provisions to be actively supported by our own government and by governments worldwide.

As someone of mixed background, including a good portion of Osage and a touch of Comanche, I've chosen to focus on the holiday as a modern creation that has no connection to its historical roots. When I taught my class of high school ESL about thanksgiving, then, I didn't talk much about pilgrims, etc. Instead I focused on it as a time to be together with family. If I went into the history with my kids, is have to talk about the American Holocaust, which would be way more than I have time to get into in an English class. It is sad though that most people don't know the true history.

We're looking for local Green Parties interested in hosting our 2016 Presidential Nominating Convention ... http://www.gp.org/state-and-local-news/1263-chosing-a-location-for-2016
At the meeting in St. Paul we had a number of cities interested in hosting the 2016 Presidential Nominating Convention. We would like to secure a location as soon as possible. This is very exciting for us as it gives us a chance to secure more/better venues and lock in prices.
